October

Well, I thought when September was over, the heat would be, too. Oops! The weather people say cooler temps are coming. That really sounds good to me. The October calendar has lots to do for the PHRC and friends. Let’s have a look. The Vette City Hamfest is this coming weekend in Bowling Green. Doors open at 8:30 on Saturday. Lots to give away and a Grand Prize of a $1000 GS from Ham Radio Outlet. That on it’s own is reason enough to make the trip. Hope to see you there……..Howl at the Hunter’s Moon on the 13th and celebrate Columbus Day on the 14th……And then, on the 19th, we present our Fun Fall Family Fish Fry and Pot Luck Picnic in the Park. My fingers are crossed for no rain or wind this year. Please bring a covered dish or dessert. We will do the fish, fries, and pups. Come early and lend a hand. We will try to eat around 3:00. You can stay late and lend another hand with the clean up and take down, too. …..Our business meeting will be on the 15th at Hardee’s. Consideration is being given to meeting quarterly in the evening. Let a club officer know how you feel about that……..Stock up for goodies for the ghosts and goblins. They will band together for their rampage on the 31st. I’ll go ahead and say it. Trick or Treat, Y’all. Have a great month and come see us at Hardee’s on Tuesdays. ……73………N4MHT……..And one more thing. The VE Test Session may be held at the Park on the 19th, as well. The time would remain the same. 10:00AM……
